1933-08-15Midget Wolgast107-10-7
Fugazy Bowl, Brooklyn, New York, USALPTS1010
Reporter Charles Vackner wrote that Wolgast back-handed Sanstol several times for which he was warned once, and regarding the others "the Quakertowner did the trick so fast that the referee couldn't see [them]." "The brow of Sanstol's eyes oozed gore at the finish and the fiery Norwegian looked as though he had been battered about the face with a carpet beater." (Wolgast was recognized in New York State as world's flyweight champion at this time.)

According to The New York Evening Journal: "Sanstol ... gave Eddie Bowling a ten-round boxing lesson ... but the best he could get was a draw. The verdict came as a complete surprise to the capacity crowd who witnessed Sanstol lacing his adversary by a wide margin in every round. Bowling made only two stands, once in the fourth and again in the sixth."

Sanstol "boxed aggressively, hit from all angles, ducked, weaved, used the ropes and, in fact, did almost everything any one boxer could possibly do in six rounds.... Sanstol is one boxer who does not believe in clinching. He just keeps on punching at long range and at close quarters.... It is a long time since a boxer broke in here and received such an ovation as was accorded Sanstol at the finish of the bout." Toronto Globe
